Puckered Up February 13 Oswalt Academy
WALNUT, CA – FEBRUARY 13, 2009 – The chant became loud as more than 800 kids yelled, “Kiss a Pig! Kiss a Pig!” The rain stopped for the all-school assembly that took place out on the blacktop and students cheered as the names of teachers were read. “Ms. Lucy,” a svelte 90 pound, nine-month old pig from the Mt. SAC Agricultural Department was ready in her pen for the excitement to begin.
Astrid Ramirez and the teachers and staff at raised more than $3,750 in the unique “Kiss A Pig” fundraiser to offset school budget cuts. For a dollar per vote, students and community members voted for their favorite teacher to do the deed. The following teachers from each grade level had the most votes and were given their own “pig nose” before laying their smooch on Ms. Lucy: Oswalt Academy
